Gelli Printed Boardbook pages

my pages began by printing directly onto peeled board book pages using my homemade gelli plate (it worked well since the book opened nice and flat)…

feeling inspired by the Art Journal Journey (AJJ) “She-Artchallenge and a Project Runway Alexander Pope design my pages emerged…

I used a few rubber stamps for interest…

  1. Whoa! That’s amazing. I love the shape of the book, too. What a great find.

  2. Lovely page spread and what fun stamps you have 😉

  3. Fantastic!! The woman image is great…esp paired with the wings. Love your stamps!

  4. Hello Miss Patty, this book is turning out to be FANTASTIC, every page gets better if that is possible, I looooove the fairy you created and the background is GORGEOUS fabulous work, I loooove it thanks for sharing, hope you two have a wonderful day..

  5. another HIGHLIGHT in the dinosaur book Patty… I think I love the most of your pages so much because of your colorchoice and your great compositions .. I am a BLUES and GREENS girl too ..
    and I see here that I also love the same type of stampmotifs as you do.
    And how this page is done at all is just amazing… did you made a real gelatine plate or did you take other stuff to made a DIY monoprintplate?
    ( I always use a glass-kitchen -cutting- plate and had some fun with a mousepad and an acetat- sheet too to make monoprints because the original Gelli plates are very expensive to order in Europe ( some shops offer them but very expensive in my mind) and the gelatine-powder is here also not as cheap as maybe in US .. so I also won’t make a real gelatineplate )
    It is a STUNNING spread Patty … I love all about it!
    Thank you so much – you set another highlight to this month theme!
    have a good new week!
